- The placement of Star Trek: First Contact is somewhat conjectural, based upon trying to reconcile a stardate that would place it towards the very end of the year (right around DS9: "Children of Time") with a passing reference to the events of the movie in DS9: "In Purgatory's Shadow". As there was no reference to the Klingon-Federation conflict of the 2370s, best estimates would place First Contact after the cease fire enacted in "Apocalypse Rising" but before the reinstatement of the Khitomer Accords in "By Inferno's Light" and also before "Soldiers of the Empire", as Worf can be seen in First Contact to still be wearing the House of Mogh emblem on his sash and not the House of Martok's.
